    hey that means that there are 611 entries... of which 200 went in. so roughly 1/3 chance of getting in.

    wah you count very fast!

    means my photo cannot make it, so the those that did must be very nice!

    How I wish they can display the winning entries and show the minimum standards.

    IMHO - For those going on Sat, just enjoy the good fun and do not think too much about the competition. This way, you are more likely to come up with pictures that you are satisfied with.

    My reason for saying so - I have taken part in many competitions in the past. Suffice to say that there are times where I've won and there are times where I did not. In many cases though, I were not happy with the outcome of the "judgement". (Of course it feels better during times where I've won )

    But I personally feel that photography is about capturing images that translate how one perceives certain scenarios in life. Whilst such competitions are good chances to improve one's technical skills and exposure ("I didn't know you could do that!!" or "I've never thought about it this way..."), one would be lucky if the judges share the same priority of likes/dislikes as one-self.

    I hope this does not upset anyone out there. Just thought I'd share my 2 cents worth.

    In any case - Have FUN and I pray that Saturday will turn out to be a beautiful and amazing day for all!

    Cheers!

    while we all know photography is subjective, but I really wonder as well what the selection criteria is. I've looked through at random the selected photos, but none has struck me as nice yet.

    Anyway, those who are in, good luck this Saturday!

    I wasn't selected....

    i see many dslr outputs on the uploaded folder. now I wonder if the people with digicams will stand a chance in this competition.

    I think they are very particular with the PS editing. Even cropped photo is disqualified, its should be straight from the cam picture. Too bad I cropped my entry.
